I recently purchased these press-on nails on an absolute whim, I was in Asda and saw them on the corner of an aisle and decided I had to have them. I think I've only worn false nails about three times in my life so it was quite an unusual purchase for me!
I mainly decided to get them because:
1) For some reason certain nails just wont seem to grow recently, they've become quite brittle and flaky with exception to my little and ring finger, strange huh!
2) I saw them in the french manicure design and as hard as I try and can NEVER get perfect lines when I attempt this myself with nail varnish, so I thought why not cheat a little bit!
I purchased these for £7, which yes I thought was a little steep, but I suppose curiosity and wanting my nails to look a bit prettier than they actually do got the better of me!
The product is packaged within a big nail varnish bottle which I thought was really cute and within there you get 24 nails with the adhesive strip attached on the back of each, a preparation wipe, and a small nail file.
The next step involved me sorting out the correct sizes for my nails, now I have to say these nails are SHORT, which means you really have to file down your own nail to get a good fit and no visibility. There pack does provide a good range of sizes, however I couldn't find one to perfectly fit my thumb nails, I guess I'm just a bit abnormal and it's rather wide and long!
It does advise on the pack to place all your chosen nails in order before application and do your thumb and index finger last, which I would definitely recommend as it can get slightly fiddly! As you can see from the photo below each nail has an adhesive strip attached which you simply peel off and then place on your nail, and make sure you press down firmly. I held my for 30 seconds which seemed to work quite well.
So here is the finished product, I was very 'impressed' with how they turned out! The quality of the nails is really good, very shiny and hard-wearing and the don't feel loose at all. Also the fact that they are short means that certain tasks like texting and undoing buttons aren't a problem! The only downside as you can probably see from the last photo, is that the one on the thumb nail is slightly too small so you can see part of my natural nail.
Would I re-purchase? Yes definitely but I think only for a special occasion as they are a little expensive for my to justify regular use!
